Random Songs Fans Would Love For Phillip Phillips To Cover

Earlier this month, we launched a new challenge/contest for all Phillip Phillips fans following us on PhillPhillcom. The question: What’s the most random song you ever dreamed of Phillip Phillips covering?

We started with our own random song, “Dangerous Woman,” by Ariana Grande. And then, the suggestions came in! We loved reading each of them and have decided to put them all together in one place for everybody to have fun imagining this strange dream set list.

To start, a lot of people would like Phillip to cover Elvis Presley (mentioned 5 times).

Fleetwood Mac, The Beatles and Bob Dylan got a couple of mentions too. Some personal favourites from the suggestions: Beyoncé, “Crazy in Love,” Lizzo, “Juice,” Sia, “Alive,” and a couple of songs by K-Pop band ASTRO. These are quite random and completely removed from Phillip’s style, so they made us laugh and let our imagination fly.

Phillip has already covered a few of the songs suggested (Eminem – “Lose Yourself,”  Marvin Gaye  – “Let’s Get It On, ” Ray Charles – “Georgia on My Mind”), so those songs are not included the list. However, luck you!

Finally, thank you everybody for sending your answers; we really, really appreciate them. Here is the full list of your most random songs for Phillip Phillips to cover. We start the list with our suggestion, then we list the artists with multiple mentions, and then the rest in no particular order.
